If you’ve considered grabbing one of these babies before, NOW IS THE TIME.
Our favourite smartwatch brands like Garmin and Fitbit have deals on right now which could score you a super snazzy smartwatch for less than half price.
In our popular post about tracking smartwatches for watersports, we explain exactly why these watches are so brilliant for outdoor sportspeople (kitesurfers, pay attention!) which is really worth a read since we go into detail about the techy side of waterproof ratings, battery power, and GPS.
Ski + snowboard goggles
Ski and snowboard goggles are going at bargain rates on Amazon this week across dozens of brands. Super extra unicorn reflective rainbow finish? Check. Classic matt black and charcoal? Also check. Check out the deals before they’re all claimed!
Get megabucks off inflatable SUPs on Amazon, which are one piece of kit that we friggin’ adore (our Starboard iSUP has — and will continue to — come everywhere with us). The 10’6 iSUP linked above comes with an adjustable paddle, leash system, fins, and a compact carry bag which is perfect for toting around on your travels.
Okay, so technically this isn’t a Black Friday sale BUT the GoPro Hero 7 Black is selling at an enormous discount on Amazon right now, due to the recent release of the new Hero 8 model.
The Hero 7 Black has been our action cam of choice for the past year and we still absolutely love it. If you’re looking for a top of the line action camera at a seriously discounted price, you can’t really do better than this.
Fancy reading our detailed review on the Hero 7 Black before you commit to buying? Click through and find out how we put it to the test — and why we still think it’s the best action camera for travelling with.
Camera + computer gear
So many of you ask us what kind of tech and camera gear we use to create our Extreme Nomads content — and the good news is we use products that anyone can get on Amazon, and they aren’t crazy expensive either.
For those of you with a love of photography and videography, go check out the massive sale going on cameras, lenses, and accessories right now. There are also some seriously good deals on tablets and computer gear too.
Whether you’re looking to score yourself a tablet for travelling with, snag your first proper camera, or upgrade the crusty aul point-and-shoot that you’ve had since 2003, you’ll be snapping like a pro (and paying half nothing for it!) in no time with these Black Friday camera discounts.
